Your health. Our priority.
What is an Orthotic?
Orthotic services performed by Certified Orthotists assure that patients receive the highest level of care for their neuro‐musculoskeletal (involving the nerves, muscle, joints, bones and ligaments) or musculoskeletal impairments. As healthcare’s primary specialists in the implementation of braces or supports, we work with prescribing physicians or therapists to correct, support or protect parts of the anatomy. Our goal is always to achieve maximum functionality or to replace lost function.
From emergency room support to long‐term care for children or adults with disabilities, Orthotists provide custom‐made or prefabricated orthoses (braces or supports) for protection, correction or replacement of lost function.
What Is A Custom Orthotic?
A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
